That's why I wrote animate.sty. Besides not needing Acrobat Professional
it usually allows for higher frame rates than aeb_pro based animations,
because it is not based on OCGs, aka PDF layers. (Test with `+' button
to see what is possible). And the interface is somewhat easer to catch.

Use this work-flow (due to PSTricks involved):
latex --> dvips --> ps2pdf

Make sure that dvips is *not* called with option -Ppdf! Check the
TeXShop configuration. Code and resulting PDF attached.
